So this morning Hallie got a Ben 10 watch and some lego, Spiderman bubble bath, oh and some slime. No pink things or barbies or the like in this house today. She was very excited and generously told Oliver he could play with the watch while she was at school.
For tea we had as tradition dictates, whatever the birthday person wants - plain rice with butter, Jackie's breadsticks, soup, orange fizz and salt and vinegar chips. Nanny came for tea too. It was all a bit starchy but Hallie loved it.
Yesterday Oma had sent her a present in the mail. She felt so grown up getting it and today Poppy Steve sent her a card with $5 in it. Usually Mum and Dad get all the mail so she was very excited to get something 2 days in a row. The cake was a bit dismal but I'm sure the Ben 10 watch makes up for it.
NB - wearing a Teenage Ninja Turtle singlet!!
